London, Brighton & South Coast Railway (LBSC) "Grande Vitesse" van of 1906-08. This ancient six-wheeled vehicle seems to have ended its days on the quayside at Newhaven. Built for "express" freight traffic, which was presumably transhipped onto ferries as Newhaven didn't have ships that could carry railway wagons or vans. This van may even be the one that was "grounded" later next to the swing bridge.

These two railway sidings were used for repairing wagons. This wagon, with a short ladder below the doorway, appears to having some floor planks replaced. Later than the date of this picture, compressed air pipes were run on concrete posts along the sidings to use air tools.

This mast/flagpole had "cones" raised to warn shipping in the harbour of gales. Point upwards meant a northerly gale, point downwards, a southerly one.

North Eastern Railway (NER, not LNER) Quint C bogie bolster wagon, built pre 1923. This seems to be loaded with steel plates, perhaps sent from Teeside, to repair a ship's hull.

"Grounded" coach body, probably used as a "mess room" by loco drivers etc. from the loco depot.

Lifeboats removed from the paddle steamer, perhaps for "testing", or just getting them out of the way of other work on the ship.

Isle of Wight paddle steamer (ferry) being maintained, and painted - rather unsafe cradle hanging over the side near the bow. Appears to be "Sandown", used on the Portmouth - Ryde service. Below decks there were openings through which the "works" of the engines could be seen by passengers.

Sheerlegs. The back leg was attached to a slide, and could be moved back and forth to move the top. When forwards, engines could lifted out of ships and the sheerlegs' rear leg was moved back to lower the engine onto the quay. They were demolished in the 1960s by knocking out the pin securing the rear leg to the slide, causing the structure to topple into the river. The legs were then pulled out slowly as sections were cut off.

Flat-bottomed boats used for painting/inspecting ships. At low tide, the "grid-iron" would be visible - timber/metal(?) platform in the river would be visible. Ships were moored over this at high tide, and left out of the water at low tide. The cross-channel steamer (one of Brighton/Londres/Lisieux) may be over the "grid-iron". The boats were used in connection with this.
